Optics with AC skew

Post by Zeus » 18 Oct 2022, 06:03

Hi all,

We are considering the possibility to work in full coupling using an AC skew magnet with a frequency f=(Qx-Qy)*f_rev. Checking the Elegant manual I guess MBUMPER with ORDER=1, TILT=pi/4, PERIODIC=1 is the adecuate option. My question is, will we get acurate values of the closed orbit, emittances, beta functions, etc if we include such an element?

Inclusion of an MBUMPER element will not affect the computed values of any of those parameters, since it is time-dependent.
